Story by Jack Foley
BURN Notice is to be concluded after its seventh season.
The long-running spy drama, starring Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar and Bruce Campbell, will reach the 100th episode milestone this summer, after which it will bring Michael Weston’s story to an end.
Announcing the decision, Chris McCumber, USA Network co-president, said in a statement: “Burn Notice has had an incredible run over the last six years, and we could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show into one of the most popular and lauded shows on TV today.”
He was backed by Jeff Wachtel, USA Network co-president, who added: “From day one, Burn Notice‘s characters, storylines and mythology have consistently captivated a massive audience, and this final season will raise the stakes even higher, leading up to a spectacular series finale.”
Burn Notice follows the fortunes of a former CIA operative who finds himself ‘burned’ by his own people and desperate to clear his name. While doing so, he hooks up with two former colleagues to provide assistance to those who need help in their struggles against various criminal elements.
It debuted in 2007 and has continued to grow in stature, becoming one of the USA Network’s most prized assets.
